Spring has finally sprung for the River Hills Golf Course. 

CLYDE RIVER -Many golf course managers across the province are lamenting that their greens are too white for early openings, but River Hills Golf and Country Club is  swinging its doors wide on Friday, despite a difficult winter.

River Hills suffered more than just harsh winter weather this past season, but were also hit hard by vandals earlier in the year.

Manager Benjamin Doane said the coure would open despite this. 

In January, four-wheelers spun through the course, digging up greens and fairways and causing thousands of dollars worth of damage.

Holes 12, 13 and 14 had minor damage with the most severe damage on hole 11.  The golf club plans to put a temporary green on that hole for the season’s players and tournaments.

They are offering a first time membership special of $417.30
